<span class="caps">DRUM</span> <span class="caps">SOLO</span>!!!

Last night on BBC World Service they talked about a new 35-minute documentary The Solo, in which Carl Palmer is filmed playing five different drum sequences. Just him and the drums. It starts with a single snare, and finishes with an eleven-minute drumstravaganza. I hope the movie makes it to Netflix at some point… the most memorable drum solo I’ve ever seen was Carl Palmer during an ELP tour in the 90s. There is a snippet of the film’s introduction on Youtube. Enjoy.
